Investor’s Business Daily Editorial Board: Trump’s Energy Revolution Can’t Come Soon Enough

An Investor’s Business Daily editorial noted the politics at play surrounding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to not release the easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

“Politics: If you want to know why the economy has been struggling so much under President Obama, look no further than the arbitrary and capricious decision by his Army Corps of Engineers to block the Dakota Access pipeline it had already approved.”

The board touches a theme we have remained concerned about throughout the federal review of the Dakota Access Pipeline, the arbitrary proverbial hand of government, quashing an established process if it conflicts with a political agenda. These types of government interferences are dangerous for investors, who can be threatened with project cancellation despite following all state and federal laws and receiving approvals.
